Climbing & Wining Adventure

MYA is partnering up again with Equinox Climbing Service for a rad rock climbing experience in beautiful Camden, Maine. Adventurers will indulge in plenty of yummy vegetarian food and a variety of vino with visitations to three local wineries! 

IMG_6191.jpg

Enjoy a half day of awesome professionally led rock climbing in Camden with Equinox Guiding Service. Adventurers will rock climb at Barrett's Cove Cliff overlooking Megunticook Lake with the ocean in the distance. Certified guide, Noah Kleiner (fun and very passionate about his job!) will assist adventurers every step of the way and supply all the climbing necessities of helmet, harness and shoes. Beginners welcome! Adventurers can challenge themselves or keep it simple and easy.

Post climb, adventurers can dip their feet in the water and get in some splashing at Barrett’s Cove Beach before heading to Cellardoor Winery. Off the beaten path at a 200 year old barn surrounded by fields, marsh and forest, Cellardoor is a gorgeous spot for eating and sharing wine.

IMG_6194.jpg

It’s also a great spot for some fun yoga moments! At all of our stopping points along the adventure, Holly Twining will toss in some stretching and balancing with some good belly laughs! We’ll indulge in a yummy vegetarian picnic lunch with a select Cellardoor bottle or two. MYA is happy to accommodate any and all dietary needs.

Exploring the barn inside and out is a worthwhile endeavor. Adventurers can learn the history and process of winemaking on site via the knowledgeable and often wonderfully quirky Cellardoor staff.

IMG_6164.jpg

From there, we’ll head out about 20 minutes or so to Savage Oakes Vineyard & Winery in Union. We’ll come across the ninety-five acre farm owned by Elmer and Holly Savage. They’ve got four acres of vineyard with ten varieties of grapes on a beautiful property with sweet cows, pigs, chickens, and perhaps the family dog in view. MYA will certainly partake in a wine tasting and farm strolling!

savage.jpg

We’ll move on to our last spot on the wine tour, Sweetgrass Winery & Distillery. They take pride in crafting wines and spirits from real Maine ingredients. 

Sweetgrass+Farm+Winery+&+Distillery+Union+Maine.jpeg

Maine's unique growing seasons are their inspiration, and they delight in finding new distillations to make from the bounty of Maine fruits and grains. Yes, there’s a tasting room, MYA will partake! There just might be space for more yoga too!

Join us for a wicked fun Saturday of climbing, imbibing, movement and yummy food!

Cost: $120.

Maine Yoga Adventures is heading back to Spannocchia, the perfect place for adventuring into the heart of Tuscany, Italy. 

IMG_2480.JPG

Organic farm and educational center, Spannocchia is nothing short of magical. Twelve miles west of Siena, Spannocchia boasts beautiful vistas, awesome hiking, verdant gardens, superb culinary classes, a lovely swimming pool, adorable farm animals, fantastic wine, amazing food, great people, and more...

Casetta al Padule will be our private oasis for a full week. MYA will offer breakfasts and dinners to adventurers - we'll keep our options open for lunches dependent on where our adventuring takes us. Wine tastings! Olive oil tastings! Nature walks! Village explorations!

Decorative details of the casetta feature the local yellow Sienese marble – a buttery stone marbled with ochre and bronze veins. The open layout is perfect for our group, and its location next to a pasture provides lovely morning views of cows grazing as the fog lifts from the valley. Four bedrooms create space for eight lucky adventurers!

The kitchen is a perfect space for preparing delicious Tuscan style meals. A large covered terrace at the back of the house will highlight outdoor dining and gathering. Dinners will be split between the casetta and the Spannocchia restaurant for a fully immersive experience.  

Adventurers will be sure to enjoy yoga every day, an excursion either on or beyond the property, and free time to simply soak in the atmosphere (and soak in the pool!). With the pros at Spannocchia, our group will have wine tastings and an onsite garden tour and cooking class. 

MYA will have two vehicles for ease off-site adventuring. We'll enjoy a day in the city of Siena, explore quaint villages, connect with culture, art and nature. Some possibilities...

San Galgano: Visit the remarkable circular chapel of Monte Siepi, site of the miraculous sword in the stone of Saint Galgano. A wine bar, terrific view of the valley and mountains, is perfect for a sunset aperitivo. 

Colle Val d'elsa: Soak in this charming town off the beaten path with a vegetarian restaurant and open air market. Very close by is Colombaia, Biodynamic vineyard, a small vineyard with organic wines.

San Gimignano: Climb 15 of the original 72 towers that rise above the skyline for an impressive view of the countryside. The city developed according to a star-shaped plan along the ancient via Francigena.

Pienza: The city of cacio, cheese, MYA doesn't want to miss this! Adventurers may need cacio to go along with all of the splendid chianti we'll be tasting in the region. 

Cost: $2000

Join MYA for seven nights of fabulousness, yoga, yummy vegetarian food, daily excursions, gorgeous accommodations and so much more…Please contact Holly if you’d like a payment plan. Flight is not included - you can choose to fly into either Florence or Rome.

to Jul 21

Bold Coast Adventure

Maine Yoga Adventures is heading downeast for another spectacular yoga, hiking, yummy food weekend in gorgeous Lubec!

IMG_4370.jpg

Adventurers will spend the weekend at West Quoddy Station; a beautiful piece of property with plenty of areas to practice yoga outside and in! The station is also very close to fabulous hiking!  

This year MYA finally gets to take over the super cool big house, the Station House, that has two levels, sweet views, and is so close to a great platform for outdoor yoga practices. The house is an original c.1915 USCG building that housed the officers and crew of USCG Station Quoddy Head until being decommissioned in 1970.

station+house.jpg

Restored in 2002, it offers spacious accommodations with 5 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths. On the 1st floor there is a fully equipped, modern kitchen, half bath, dining/living room and a large master suite. The second floor has a queen bedroom, a full bedroom, a twin bedroom (2 beds), a single bedroom and bathroom.

MYA will be serving up some scrumptious vegetarian meals for adventurers, we’re always happy to work with special dietary needs. Adventurers will be responsible for their lunches (although there’s usually leftovers!) and healthy snacks to keep their energy up for lots of nature explorations.

Adventurers will enjoy Quoddy Head State Park and the Bold Coast Trail for some of the best wildlife watching in the state. Adventurers may spot whales, countless ducks and shorebirds as well as eagles and songbirds. We’ll check out Maine's easternmost lighthouse, West Quoddy Head Light, in all of it’s candy-striped fabulousness. Wandering amongst the cliffs is breathtaking!

Lubec offers an astounding amount of nature from beaches to forest, ponds to bogs, cliff sides to gardens. From the rich ecological tapestry, adventurers can pick a special hike, start upon a magical trail and simply breath it in and enjoy...

Our adventure will also take us to Canada! Campobello Island is known for natural beauty, cultural significance and outstanding picturesque locations. Adventurers will get in hiking there as well! 

IMG_4629.jpg

We visited Head Harbour Lightstation for a small fee last season and were rewarded with whale and porpoise sightings.

The cost includes two nights accommodations, daily yoga, spectacular hiking, dinners & breakfasts, nighttime explorations, and more...

Cost: $750/shared queen; $700/shared double; $450/double; $425/single; $400/twin (shared price is the cost for 2 adventurers total)

If we need more space for adventurers, MYA will happily take over the Crew’s Quarters, our sweet accommodations from last year.

Iceland Adventure: Hikes & Hot Pots

14
to Sep 22

Iceland Adventure: Hikes & Hot Pots

  • Snæfellsjökull National Park Iceland (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

MYA is taking on a third adventure to the land of fire and ice - heading back to gorgeous and unique Iceland for seven nights! Adventurers will take in awesome sights while hiking, geothermal soaking, horseback riding, enjoying yummy food, yoga and more…

It all begins with the Blue Lagoon (best thing after flying!) - we'll soak up the goodness of one of the 25 wonders of the world!

blue lagoon1.jpg

Adventurers will relax and indulge in silky pale wonder packed with health benefits. The geothermal water has unique ingredients of silica, algae and minerals. Ahhh...the biggest decision you’ll have to make is whether to have the smoothy or the Prosecco!

Eventually we’ll have to leave our bathrobes behind. Adventurers will start north with a pause in funky downtown Reykjavik for lunch. We love Glo, a super tasty vegetarian restaurant right down the street from the penis museum (not kidding!).

GLO.jpg

With happy bellies, we’ll head to the magical Snæfellsnes peninsula for two nights of adventuring - a perfect spot for northern lights viewing! We’ll explore the black sand beach, lava fields, Kirkjufell mountain, Snaefellsjokull glacier, the craggy coastline, and more. Maybe luck will bring us an arctic fox again (take a look at the pic below in the peninsula series)!

Our private home will be in Arnarstapi where adventurers will be surrounded by abundant and breathtaking beauty.

peninsula.jpg

Please note that we’ll be cozying up in the house, there are six beds, but absolutely worth it! On one side of the home is the sea on the other side is the glacier completed by the outdoor hot pot (hot tub) to take in the stunning views. Feel free to give me any early heads up if you want one of the twin beds.

The home is flooded with natural light, beautifully appointed with a chef-worthy kitchen, wood-burning fireplace within a sumptuous living room, large dining area for meals, games and conversation and comfy beds in private rooms for a great night’s rest. Outdoors, the wrap-around deck is the perfect platform for viewing the Aurora Borealis (visible both nights during our stay) as well as the backyard mountain range and ocean bay. A very few steps off the deck leads to stunning views of the backyard waterfall and natural sea-arch carved thru the cliff face - a veritable miniature of Gatklettur - the Hellnar Arch - just down the road. You’re also just minutes away from Songhellur Cave. I can’t imagine a better, more comfortable lodging from which to explore the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. From our luxurious ‘base camp’ we easily dropped by Olkelduvatn Mineral Spring, toured Stykkisholmur and Grundarfjordar - where we caught fantastic reflecting photos of Kirkjufell - and then headed to World’s End at Öndverðarnes. There we might have spotted whales in season, but settled for the charcoal lava cliffs and Viking gravesite at Skarðsvík, a golden beach with basalt cubes alongside. The volcanic crater Vatnsborg was next, and dramatic Svörtuloft bird cliffs (Saxhólsbjarg), with excellent walkways. A tall, orange lighthouse also lies upon this trail and was well worth the trek. The 30-minute return trip to the house took us past Londrangar (the basalt cliffs). -visitor

Throughout the duration of the adventure, MYA will be serving up yummy vegetarian/vegan dinners and breakfasts in our well-appointed kitchens. We’ll absolutely be out exploring around lunchtime so we’ll be sure to pack up a lunch to bring along.

Marci-5.jpg

Marci, our cook, is a passionate foodie, yogi and travel junkie.  She owned her own successful travel company for years before closing shop to raise her kids. During that time she discovered her love of cooking and yoga. After completing her 200-hour yoga teacher training she also attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the Academy of Culinary Nutrition where she became a certified holistic health and wellness coach and a culinary nutrition educator.  Spending time in the kitchen preparing and cooking for others with love and creativity is her happy place.

Adventurers will get in a least one proper yoga practice a day, sometimes more. Beginners welcome! No experience necessary :)

peninsula9.jpg

Keep in mind that this is your adventure and as in a yoga practice, you go at your own pace - you decide if you want to hang back and chill in the hot pot or come along for another hike. I bet this hot pot is going to be a great spot at night for taking in the aurora borealis.

From the peninsula, MYA will get in its first experience at an Icelandic hotel and this one looks super fine! Hotel Husafell will host us for one special night - we’ll settle down into a three bedroom and two bedroom house with hot pots, kitchens, and plenty of lounge space. The hotel itself has an outdoor pool and more hot pots!

Moments away from the hotel, there will be plenty of nature to explore including the lava waterfalls, maybe a Langjökull Ice Cave tour, a hike up Mount Strútur and/or wooded paths heading westward for an easy walk along Oddar, a group of brooks with diverse birdlife, from there it is just a short walk upriver to the meeting point of two rivers: the Norðlingafljót and Hvítá which will bring us to the waterfall Hundavaðsfoss. On my scouting trip in April four years ago we visited the lava waterfalls, it’ll be great to see them in September…

After our nature frolicking, we’ll travel further afield to hunker down for three nights in Akureyri, the capital of the north, in our own private home across from the city in a quiet area.

north.jpg

We’ll settle into a five bedroom and 2.5 bathrooms house with a sunroom and a spacious living room that makes for nice relaxation areas with marvelous views over the Eyjafjörður (the longest fjord in Iceland and one of the best places in the country for whale and puffin watching) and Akureyri.

Adventurers will enjoy checking out turf homes, the botanical garden, art galleries, Bjorbodin Beer Spa (optional), Dettifoss waterfall, Goðafoss waterfall, Ásbyrgi canyon, horseback riding (optional) and the community pool - one of Iceland's most popular pools with two outdoor pools, water jets, water slides, a splash pool, an indoor pool, four hot tubs, a steam bath, and a sauna.

We’ll also be close to the gorgeous Mývatn lake region which boasts Dimmuborgir lava formations, bubbling Hverir Mud pools, natural steam vents, and Grotcaja cave.

baths.jpg

The Myvatn Nature Baths are a highlight where you can enjoy the baths (optional - MYA will cover 1/2 the fee) similarly to the blue lagoon perhaps with less hype. Yes, more geothermal soaking! And that’s why we’re staying for three nights.

Last year we were very close by on the Troll peninsula (we can explore there too!) just north of the city where we found spectacular sights and even a random iceberg that floated by…

For our last eve in Iceland, we’ll head south with a stop at Baer where we’ll take over a family-owned guest house surrounded by nature yet close enough to the airport for an easy journey back. Located by Hvita River with mountains in view, adventurers will investigate the Snorralaug Hot Spring as well as Reykholt village just twelves miles away. On site we’ll partake in the hot pot (yes!) and simply enjoy the garden, a fab kitchen, wood floors and plenty of room for adventurers to relax and of course, to sleep.

This will probably be MYA’s last visit to this country full of magic and wonder - join us! We’re flying on Icelandair and more than happy to help adventurers with travel details. Feel free to call 207-299-0082 or email maineyogaadventures@gmail.com with questions.

Cost: $2,200 includes 7 nights accommodations, breakfasts & dinners, Blue Lagoon, yoga, hiking, lots of hot pots, fabulous adventurers and more…

Costa Rican Sea Turtles Adventure
Jan
9
to Jan 17

Costa Rican Sea Turtles Adventure

Maine Yoga Adventures is partnering again with outstanding nonprofit conservation organization, Earthwatch Institute, to assist on a 9 day Costa Rican Sea Turtles Expedition.

_2190865.jpg

Following volunteer work, adventurers will head to an awe-inspiring private home, The Sunset, in the rainforest of Nuevo Arenal for yoga, healthy vegetarian food, hiking, sightseeing, playing in the pool and more!

Adventurers are free to choose just the sea turtle expedition with Earthwatch Institute or just the adventure with MYA or both!

Lead scientist Frank Paladino, Professor of Biology, Indiana-Purdue University, has a research team to help gain a better understanding of the ecology of endangered turtles that nest on the beaches of Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas. These beaches host the largest remaining population of leatherback turtles in the Eastern Pacific as well as important populations of olive ridley and East Pacific green turtles. (pics below by Jeff Morey)

The work will consist of... 

  • Observing and monitor nesting leatherbacks. Those working on the beach at night will visit each nesting leatherback to take measurements and record any unusual markings or injuries—in other words, you’ll get as close as a person can to these majestic animals.

  • Release hatchlings in the ocean. When babies start to emerge from the eggs in the hatchery, our team will take the tiny turtles down to the water's edge and release them into the wild.

  • Survey the beach. During the day, our team will count sea turtle nests on the beach, take nest temperatures, and look for signs of erosion that could put nests in danger.

Accommodations are at the Goldring Marine Biology Field Station perched at the edge of the beach. Team MYA will share a bedroom with bunk beds. We'll have plenty of space to lounge at the pool or in the hammock. Typical tasty Costa Rican breakfasts and dinners of beans will be served up as well as ingredients for simple delicious lunches. 

Adventurers can create an expedition fund through Earthwatch to receive tax-deductible donations to cover volunteering costs ($2,845 accommodations & food are included; flight is not included) or use another contribution platform such as GoFundMe.

paladino-costa-rican-sea-turtles-c.-joan-burnett-h-10_5200.jpg

The former Principal Investigator for this project, Nathan Robinson, is the scientist seen removing a straw from a turtle’s nostril in what is considered to be the viral video responsible for straw bans!

IMG_1204.jpg

Nature is abundant in this peaceful place - the Costa Rican sunsets are gorgeous, like none other! Volunteers will have some time to relax on the beach, explore, and soak in the beauty. There will also be time for wildlife watching, howler monkey families reside there, anteaters, and even crocs in the slower waterways, and many other cool critters.

Post-research expedition, MYA will adventure to The Sunset in Nuevo Arenal for four blissful nights (January 17-21) of yoga, nature immersions (finding a sloth or two!), excursions, rainforest rambling, stargazing, birding (toucans visit the house), and delicious food!

IMG_2482.jpg

Rachel Hicks, our cook from Virginia, will work her adventure magic in the kitchen again. Rachel comes to MYA with a vibrant passion for the outdoors, sustainability, food, and wellness. A yoga teacher with a masters in nutrition, Rachel has led retreats and workshops in her wheelhouse of health and well-being.

The Sunset, our home, is going to be unbelievable! Located in the rainforest rather than a gated community, surrounded by nature, a 500 hundred acre preserve to the east and thousand acres of protected rainforest encompassing Tenorio National park to the North and West. A spot of peace and privacy with access to amazing excursions both in the forest and on the lake.

The entire property is a showcase of Costa Rican art, decorative tile, stone and craft work. Six beautifully appointed bedrooms featuring artwork, hand carved beds and doors with bathrooms en suite, and two decorative fireplaces are all for MYA. The master suite bathroom features a hot tub built for two (Holly promises to share!). There’s a chef’s kitchen, library/living room area, dining area, and a unique indoor pool with jacuzzi. We can play billiards and ping pong - lounging areas, an inversion table, and a massage table are also at our disposal.

Lake Arenal has so much to offer adventurers - windsurfing, canopy tours, boat tours, jungle hiking trails, kite surfing, horseback riding, kayaking, swimming in an extinct volcanic crater, spelunking and more. We can decide as a group our fav excursions, definitely hanging bridges and hot springs, and still have the option to simply relax and enjoy the tranquility and majesty of your surroundings.

cr2020_7.jpg

To help the Costa Rican National Park system finance education, outreach and protection, Red Sunset devotes 50% of each commission gained through sales of adventure tours toward this goal. With the benefit of access to individuals in the tour system that make it all work - tribal leaders, guides, and park directors. MYA will take advantage of a couple tours for sure!

This will be MYA's 5th journey to Costa Rica via the airport in Liberia. Founder, Holly Twining, will fly from Boston, if adventurers feel more comfortable with a travel buddy. Flights are in the $500-$600 range.

To secure your spot on the sea turtle expedition team, Earthwatch will receive an initial contribution, a nonrefundable $300 deposit. Adventurers can use the fund for the deposit as well. If you're ready to commit to the expedition call Zach Zimmerman at 978-450-1226.

Adventure cost including four nights of fab accommodations, daily yoga, nature explorations, stunning sunsets, vegetarian dinners & breakfasts, pool dipping, wildlife viewing, airport transport & more...

$2,200 shared queen ($1,100 per adventurer); $1,700 solo queen; $1,200 bunk bed

Please feel free to contact Holly for a payment plan if need be, MYA doesn’t like to turn down adventurers :)

Earth Day Adventure: Goats & Gratitude

As a last minute celebratory adventure, MYA is heading back to the farm with more fun with goats and delicious food! Earth Day is every day for adventurers and Lone Spruce Farm but we’ll make this one extra special by drawing attention to what we’re grateful for and simple things we can do to make the earth a better place.

IMG_8823.jpg

We’ll begin with giving some love to the farm animals and spending extra time with the goats as we practice a yoga flow alongside them.

If there’s a chill in the air, adventurers can cozy up to an outdoor fire. Mimosas can be conjured up as well if adventurers are into it.

Next up will be food! Kristin, farmer and cook extraordinaire, of Lone Spruce will get the wood stove heated up for eggs (choice of duck, hen or goose eggs) alongside rustic breads and fresh greens.

IMG_8885.JPG

As we brainstorm all things earthy, we can take a stroll through the woods and alongside the stream. We’ll then kick off our shoes, get barefoot in the greenhouse and paint our promises to the earth and self.

Adventurers can share their ideas and art on the greenhouse walls. We’ll get visceral, don’t worry about getting technical :)

Cost: $45; $40/student

Zipping, Castling & Skiing Adventure

We had a blast the first time! So, MYA is headed back to the beautiful White Mountains region of New Hampshire for a wicked fun packed weekend adventure including ziplining, nighttime ice castle exploring, state park exploring, downhill skiing (cross country if you prefer), snowshoeing, and more…

Friday eve will get settled into our accommodations, our own private home with access to a pool and hot tub! We’re nicely placed in the town of Lincoln and very close to Loon Mountain. We’ll have three comfortable bedrooms and 2.5 neat, clean bathrooms. Two levels of living space will allow for us to spread out and relax!

Arrival time is very flexible (the house is open at 3pm). We’ll have time to check out the clubhouse with a heated indoor pool, outdoor pool, hot tub, and gym. Adventurers can stretch out after the drive, enjoy happy hour and indulge in a hearty MYA vegetarian meal.

IMG_0098.jpg

Saturday, after breakfast and yoga, adventurers have a date in Lincoln with Alpine Adventures for winter ziplining. They opened the first, longest, highest and fastest Zipline Canopy Tour in New England in 2006. Our adrenaline will be pumping on this wintertime thrill ride! Our guides will keep us safe and secure as we zip over the canopy with outstanding views.

ice+castles+2.jpg

We’ll come back to our fab pad to relax and eat yummy food before heading out for nighttime fun - a visit to the Ice Castles (if they aren’t melted yet)! Adventurers will explore icy layers and tunnels in a version of Frozen. The castles are enshrouded in an aurora borealis and lit from within in a rainbow of colors.

Sunday funday can be adventurer’s choice! Loon Mountain is close by and has wonderful downhill runs. Cross-country skiing is awesome there too, their network of trails makes for a perfect way to explore the White Mountains. Loon also has a skating pond that we may like to check out - fun! Adventurers can purchase their downhill skiing tickets online. For cross-country skiing no worries, Loon’s trail prices are very affordable or you can opt for park trails for free.

flume+gorge.jpg

We checked out Franconia Notch State Park during our last visit and loved snowshoeing in to see The Flume, a super cool site of flowing water and thick ice and snow.

Don’t miss out on a yoga adventure with healthy vegetarian food, fab accommodations, ziplining, ice castles, playtime in the snow and more…

Pop-Up Adventure: Going Green!

Join MYA for a pop-up, last minute adventure! It's a St. Patrick's Day go green Sundayfunday - we’re heading into the woods for a dose of greenery then to Sanctuary Spa & Wellness Center for green faces and green beer! What a perfect way to celebrate! 

First we'll get some outside time and a splash of yoga. We'll meet up at UMAINE behind the rec center, put on snowshoes and take a short hike with pauses for snowga (yoga in the snow). The university forest is beautiful, a great place to play, to laugh and ease into nature. Surely we’ll soak up as much green as we can.

Then adventurers will experience sweet spa time at Sanctuary! Oh la la all will settle into a soothing facial (green of course!) and foot soaking. MYA will have plenty of delicious food to eat and of course, green beer. If you don't like beer, no worries, there's always wine and we can make believe its green.

Katahdin Ascent Adventure

to Mar 3

Katahdin Ascent Adventure

Oh la la we were Sold Out but now, MYA is opening it up to 4 more adventurers - we’ll have two groups summiting this season!

Embrace your sense of adventure with a wintertime ascent of Katahdin with MYA and Acadia Mountain Guides! This will be our second time up the mountain and space goes fast…

IMG_8021.JPG

The remote location and arctic environment of Katahdin makes it one of the most rewarding winter alpine ascents in New England. Reaching the summit at any time of year is awesome but in winter it holds more magic and less people.

Our climb begins with a half-day snowshoe or ski to the base of the mountain where winter camping skills and mountaineering skills are taught. We start the climb the next morning and return back to trailhead by early evening.

This trip is physically demanding but requires no experience. Adventurers are lead by winter mountaineering guides.

Included in the adventure is climbing instruction, park fees, micro spikes, crampons, ice axe, avalanche safety equipment when necessary, double boots, skis, snowshoes, dinner, breakfast, and -20 degree sleeping bags.

IMG_8040.jpg

Holly, Founder of MYA will toss in yoga whenever time permits. We'll be sure to get in some deep breaths and stretching - the climbing boots make it pretty sweet to balance!

Adventurers are responsible for their own clothing, lunch, and snacks. All climbers receive 15% off for life at Alpenglow Adventure Sports at 92 Main Street, Orono and at AlpenglowGear.com. We’ll have a meetup, a gear shakedown, in the store prior to hitting the ascent to make sure every adventurer is prepared, time and date to be announced.

katahdin group.JPG

As we never know what the weather and mountain will provide for conditions during the climb, sometimes it is pleasant and sunny, others its windy with whiteout conditions; adventurers can choose to spend Sunday eve at a hotel in Millinocket.

Cost: $275. To commit to the challenge, simply add to cart below.

Please contact Holly or Alpenglow with any questions.

Join Maine Yoga Adventures on a fourth fabulous playtime in the snow with Maine Huts & Trails!

IMG_7110.JPG

MYA is always happy to support this nonprofit organization whose mission is to create and operate a world-class system of backcountry trails and eco-lodges for people-powered recreation for the benefit of current and future generations.

We loved it so much that we’re heading back to last season’s beautiful Flagstaff Hut situated on the dramatic stretch of Flagstaff Lake (once a town now a waterway).

The adventure begins on a groomed wooded trail that leads us for about two miles on gentle inclines and declines to the hut. Adventurers can choose to either cross-country ski, fat bike, or snowshoe. Often the conditions on the trails can tell us which transportation system will work best :)

Some of us will take it slow (no fear beginners!) others may enjoy a brisker pace. Lisa Carter with wilderness first aid & plenty of outdoor experience will be our co-leader, helping out adventurers along the way. All are responsible for backpacking their own gear in - pack light.

Once at the hut, we’ll unload gear and head back out for more skiing and/or snowshoeing. We'll also practice some snowga (yoga in the snow) - fun!

After playtime in the snow, we’ll warm up in front of the fire inside the stunning Flagstaff Hut. The hut offers up fantastic vegetarian food (dinner, breakfast and lunch)! Adventurers are welcome to bring cash for wine and beer. In the morning we’ll sneak in another yoga practice then head back out to enjoy the lake and the trails taking our time leaving this very magical site.

Come together to share good company, snowga, laughter, stories, and more...

Cost: $215/early birds; $230/after Dec 23

Costa Rica Adventure

Join MYA in gorgeous Costa Rica on Playa Grande for a quickie three night adventure in a super fab oceanside locale!

We’ll practice yoga, eat healthy vegetarian food, play in the waves, and immerse ourselves in nature and culture. If you’ve never been to CR, this is the perfect introduction to pura vida.

Adventurers will gather at Casa Mandarina (for some, following volunteer time on a sea turtle focused Earthwatch expedition), a beautiful private house located directly on the beach. Ocean views fill almost every room with hammocks for relaxing, a large swimming pool for soaking, and quick access to sand & surf. During the day the doors open up from wall to wall to let in amazing water views, seaside breezes, and sound of waves.

The main house has 3 spacious bedrooms; two of which share a beach front patio so everyone can enjoy the view. The 4th bedroom is in a separate building near the pool, complete with private bath, a queen size bed and three twin beds.

Sweetly tucked in our oasis the glorious Costa Rican sunsets will reveal themselves - the fluctuation of light and color seems like no other, a sight to savor.

We may have the opportunity for sea turtle viewing as well, our accommodations are just south of the protected beaches of Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas, prime turtle nesting sites.

rachel.jpg

Casa Mandarina boasts a fully equipped kitchen that Rachel Hicks, our cook from Virginia, will work her magic in. Rachel comes to MYA with a vibrant passion for the outdoors, sustainability, food, and wellness. A yoga teacher with a masters degree in nutrition, Rachel has led retreats and workshops in her wheelhouse of health and well-being.

Playa Grande is a cool little town with a relaxed beach vibe and friendly people. Nature is abundant in this peaceful place; yet, as a delightful contrast, we're not far from the bustling town of Tamarindo with restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. The casa is a 10 minute stroll to the estuary and from there we can boat in for shopping and lunch. We may hit the dance floor at the disco for a well-rounded adventure!

If adventurers would like to book tours, massage, surf lessons, etc. MYA is happy to arrange it all for you and probably get in on the fun too!

This will be MYA's fourth journey to Costa Rica via the airport in Liberia. Founder, Holly Twining, flies out of Boston and currently flights are still below $500.

If you’re interested in learning more about the Earthwatch Costa Rican Sea Turtles Expedition with the adventure, visit https://maineyogaadventures.com/workshops-om/seaturtles.

Adventurers will enjoy three nights of fab beach front accommodations, daily yoga, stunning sunsets, nature immersions, vegetarian dinners & breakfasts, and more...

Costa Rican Sea Turtles Adventure

Costa Rican Sea Turtles Adventure

Maine Yoga Adventures is coming together with outstanding nonprofit conservation organization, Earthwatch, to assist on a 9 day Costa Rican Sea Turtles Expedition. Following our volunteer work, adventurers will spend extra time in Playa Grande with plenty of yoga, healthy vegetarian food, surf time and more!

Adventurers are free to choose just the expedition or just the adventure or both :)

1463069334511.jpeg

Lead scientist Frank Paladino, Professor of Biology, Indiana-Purdue University, has a research team to help gain a better understanding of the ecology of endangered turtles that nest on the beaches of Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas. These beaches host the largest remaining population of leatherback turtles in the Eastern Pacific as well as important populations of olive ridley and East Pacific green turtles. 

The work will consist of... 

  • Observing and monitor nesting leatherbacks. Those working on the beach at night will visit each nesting leatherback to take measurements and record any unusual markings or injuries—in other words, you’ll get as close as a person can to these majestic animals.

  • Release hatchlings in the ocean. When babies start to emerge from the eggs in the hatchery, our team will take the tiny turtles down to the water's edge and release them into the wild.

  • Survey the beach. During the day, our team will count sea turtle nests on the beach, take nest temperatures, and look for signs of erosion that could put nests in danger.

earthwatch.jpeg

Accommodations are at the Goldring Marine Biology Field Station perched at the edge of the beach. Team MYA will share a bedroom with bunk beds - if our numbers are 6 or more we're working solo with researchers. We'll have plenty of space to lounge at the pool or in the hammock. Typical tasty Costa Rican breakfasts and dinners of beans will be served up as well as ingredients for simple delicious lunches. 

Adventurers can create an expedition fund through Earthwatch to receive tax-deductible donations to cover volunteering costs ($2,845 accommodations & food; flight is not included) or use another contribution platform such as GoFundMe.

paladino-costa-rican-sea-turtles-c.-joan-burnett-h-10_5200.jpg

Be sure to mention to possible donors that the former Principal Investigator for this project, Nathan Robinson, is the scientist seen removing a straw from a turtle’s nostril in what is considered to be the viral video responsible for straw bans!

Post-research expedition, adventurers will head to their own beautiful private space located further south. Also directly on the beach in close proximity to the estuary. It's the perfect site for hammock lounging, yoga, meditation, group meals, playing in the surf...

Nature is abundant in this peaceful place. Nicely secluded in our backyard the glorious Costa Rican sunsets will reveal themselves!

As a delightful contrast, we're not far from the bustling town of Tamarindo with restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. We'll hit the the dance floor at the disco for a well-rounded adventure! So much more than a yoga retreat...

To secure your spot on the team, Earthwatch will receive an initial contribution, a nonrefundable $300 deposit. Adventurers can use the fund for the deposit as well. If you're ready to commit to the expedition call Zach Zimmerman at 978-450-1226.

Sunday funday can be adventurer’s choice! Loon Mountain is close by and has wonderful downhill runs. Cross-country skiing is awesome there too, their network of wide trails makes for a perfect way to explore the White Mountains. The cross-country runs vary as does the downhill experience from beginner trails to more advanced. Loon also has a skating pond that we may like to check out - fun!

Adventurers can purchase their downhill skiing tickets online or if there are enough of us, MYA can purchase as a group. If you prefer cross-country skiing no worries, their trail prices are very affordable.

We'll also carve out some time to check out the The Flume in Franconia Notch State Park - a super cool site of flowing water and thick ice and snow.

MYA is heading back to hike glorious Borestone Mountain near the southern end of Maine’s 100-Mile Wilderness! Adventurers will explore beautiful Gulf Hagas with amazing hiking and waterfalls as well. 

The adventure begins as we gather in Greenville at our own private wood cabin on loon lake - Moosehead Hills Loon Lodge. The cabin has incredible views with nothing less than majestic Mt. Kineo across the water. Situated in a peaceful spot with plenty of autumnal colors to take in, adventurers will enjoy yoga practices, healthy vegetarian food, hiking, nighttime explorations and more. If adventurers need to arrive later than 3pm, no worries!

Saturday morning we'll head out to Borestone Mountain Sanctuary, encompassing more than 1,600 acres in Maine's Hundred Mile Wilderness region, the area offers a spectacular array of natural features, including rare older forest, crystalline ponds, exposed granite crags and sweeping panoramic views. 

From the nature center at Sunrise Pond, adventurers will head to the summit on a moderately strenuous climb that culminates in spectacular 360-degree views from two peaks at nearly 2,000 feet. We'll get in the Peregrine Trail as well upon our return, through mossy woods to breathe in more stunning views. The hike will take approximately 3 1/2 hours - 4 hours. Our cabin will be a haven as we relax, rejuvenate and prepare for Gulf Hagas on Sunday Funday!

The Grand Canyon of Maine, Gulf Hagas is a slate gorge carved out by the West Branch of the Pleasant River. Over the course of three miles, the river drops about 500 feet, forming mesmerizing waterfalls and swimming holes. Dramatic rock walls that border the river can get as high as 100 feet tall. As a group, we can decide which trail suits us best. Family MYA made it to Screw Auger Falls in 2016 :)

Adventurers will enjoy indoor and outdoor yoga practices, dinners, breakfasts and plenty of time to explore nature. Machelle LaHaye, certified yoga teacher and outstanding vegetarian cook, will assist with cooking and yoga.

Adventurers may want to carve out time for Blonduos Sports Center for more hot pots and an amazing water slide! (Our guesthouse also has soaking possibilities.)

Our travels then take us to the spectacular Troll Peninsula, a hidden away Icelandic gem covered by high mountains, cliffs and green valleys. We'll drive an epic fairytale route to our lodge for two nights close to the small fishing community of Dalvik.

Adventurers will take over a beautiful seven bedroom house with hot pot, sauna, kitchen, lounging areas, patio, and breathtaking ocean and mountain views. Immersed in nature, nothing besides rain can stop the northern lights from appearing! If that is not enough, there is a view that overlooks a massive fjord where whales can be spotted beneath the alpine landscape.    

Mývatn Nature Baths, very similar to the Blue Lagoon will be an unbelievable side trip! We'll head there via the quaint city of Akureyri, the northern center of trade and culture at the base of Eyjafjörður Fjord.

baths.jpg

The baths offer a relaxing dip in clouds of steam rising up from fissures deep in the earth’s surface and a luxurious bath in geothermal water. The blend of minerals, silicates and geothermal micro-organisms will benefit skin and spirit.

Following our lodge stay, we'll head south towards Reykjavik dropping into Borgarnes to stretch our legs and take in more sweet views from a small coastal town then move on to spend our final eve cozied up at an opulent three bedroom holiday home.

Adventurers will have plenty of time to play before heading to the airport or, maybe you're looking to extend your stay - awesome!

They have plenty of boats to share so that adventurers can enjoy kayaking, paddleboarding and also tubing, kneeboarding and waterskiing - yahoo! Holly will also bring her watercraft and adventurers can feel free to bring their own as well.

If all that water horseplay is not in your comfort zone, there's a floating raft to relax on, a lovely pink flamingo and aluminum docks with stairs to dip in and out of the lake.

The adventure can fit your energy level - if you need more activity, it'll happen, if you need less, that can happen as well.

No worries, sleeping over is optional. Adventurers can choose to camp out (bring along your fav tent) or request a spare bedroom.

The early eve boat ride to watch the sunset will be gorgeous! We'll also hang by the fire and enjoy a beverage or two. Champagne! There may be stars and a skinny dip, we'll just see what happens :)
